[Histonet] experiences with kappa/lambda

In my experience, Kappa & Lambda IHC staining tops my list of difficult antibodies.  Consistency was always poor & I've tried MANY of the available kappa/lambda antibodies out there (both polyclonal & monoclonal).  In situ hybridization is the way to go as I believe that IHC demonstration of these two antibodies will always be sub-standard.

Hi listmembers,

Please tell me about your experiences with the IHC-demonstration of kappa
and lambda on FFPE-sections.

We have some troubles about inconsistend staining and therefore false
results about the monoclonality of tumors.
